Well, if that’s you, worry no more. Now you have the chance to WIN a Nikon D3200! This is an amazing camera, especially for beginners. You can read all about it in my first travel photography lesson.

We’re entering the competition too. It was a difficult choice, but this photo seemed to get a lot of ‘I wish I was there’s on our facebook page. It was taken in Costa Rica at the Cahuita National Park. Who knew palm trees could be so comfy?
